Magazine recommends Oswego for Hispanic students

Hispanic Outlook magazine has listed SUNY Oswego among its “2006 Publisher’s Picks.”

“A college education is a critical investment of time, money, and hope, an investment with a measurable power to transform and expand one’s chances in life,” wrote publisher Jose Lopez-Isa. “Our list ... represents our latest and best thinking about which colleges and universities offer Hispanic students a solid chance of academic success.”

More than 500 colleges and universities appear on the list. Lopez-Isa said the magazine bases its assessment on responses to its formal inquiries, on data from the National Center for Education Statistics and on informal input.

Of Oswego’s full-time undergraduates, 5.7 percent are identified as Hispanic, according to the college’s Office of Institutional Research.
